This is a most fabulous demi-parure consisting of a brooch/pin and matching pierced earrings. It is constructed of hallmarked 14K yellow gold(585) and gemstones.
The fly brooch measures 1 1/8" in length and is 1" wide. The body of the fly is covered with eleven deep pink colored rubies, each measuring approximately 3mm. Above this is an area covered with five yellow citrines centered by a diamond. All the stones are about 3mm in size. The flies eyes are diamonds, each about a 2mm. the wings are heavily textured gold. The back has a safety clasp. The earrings are hallmarked 585 (the European mark for 14k). The pin is unmarked but is obviously part of the same set, and has been acid tested to confirm it's 14k composition, both by myself and out jeweler.
The fantastic matching earrings measure about 3/4" in length and the same in width. They are each covered with rubies, citrines and have diamond eyes. They have a stud back. The previous owner must have removed the tiny gold nuts and replaced them with circular plastic backs so that they lay flat on the ear. They work well and look great on. I have heavy weight 14k earring backs (nuts) which were added to the set subsequent to the initial listing. These aren't shown in the listing pictures but can be substituted for one of the current site pictures if necessary (Ruby Lane limits listings to 9 pictures).
The entire set weighs a total of 13.8 grams. It is in excellent vintage condition. I also am selling a fly ring. Although not exactly matching, it would go nicely with this set.
